My self-summary
Things I like:
reading and writing, actually the English language in general (making my move to Korea seem a bit, um, misguided)~geometry and, therefore, pool~inclement weather~people who are smarter and/or better read/educated than I am, (nerdiness and intellectualism in general)~bars that have board games~playing and sometimes watching sports

Things I don't care for:
In Seogwipo, nothing yet.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to navigate life in a new country without getting gluten poisoning, decompressing after six years of teaching in the projects in Brooklyn, learning Korean, exploring Seogwipo and, once I buy a scooter, Jeju, breathing unpolluted, non-urine/garbage infused air.
I’m really good at
Cooking garlic mashed potatoes, relating to non-adults (presumably due to my own immaturity,) sleeping-in, reading in bad light, and grading papers in unusual places.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'll go out on a limb and guess that here it's my whiteness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recently: The Road, The Once and Future King, Stranger in a Strange Land, The Book of The New Sun, A Canticle for Leibowitz, and Pablo Nerdua. Right now: The Years of Rice and Salt and Frank O'hara.
The Royal Tenenbaums and The Big Lebowski and probably my two favorite movies.
TV: Mad Men, Deadwood, Arrested Development, It's Always Sunny, The Wire, Californication, Game of Thrones, and Parks and Rec.
Music: Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, Radiohead, Mumford and Sons, The National, Discovery, Arcade Fire, The Killers, Death Cab, Beirut, Discovery, Mumford and Sons, U2, classical, oldies, folksy stuff, and most things beside country, actually.
As for food, I'm allergic to gluten, so my favorite foods are, um, off the table, to use a cheap but effective pun.
The six things I could never do without
Plenty of sleep. Books. Free time. Hope. Gluten free food. Running water.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything that comes to mind...
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like dorky things.
You should message me if
You're wicked smaat, generally curious, and at least somewhat committed to the idea of trying to improve general state of affairs we find ourselves in.
